Shakespeare and Wales, Public Lecture this Friday at Cardiff University

From speculation on his ‘lost’ works, to questions over who wrote those cherished classics, few other historical individuals inspire discussion like William Shakespeare.

One area, perhaps less often considered, is ‘the Bard of Avon’s’ connection with Wales. Whilst we might remember Glendower in Henry IV, Part One, or the military leader Fluellen in Henry V, what do these moments tell us about the identity of Wales and Shakespeare’s impact upon it?

This Friday, as part of a concerted effort to explore the relationship between Wales and Shakespeare, Cardiff University is putting on a public lecture and symposium. Hosted by the Cardiff School for English, Communication and Philosophy the afternoon will include a lecture by the award winning theatre director, Michael Bogdanov, and a symposium led by scholars from around the world.

The day starts at 12pm and admission is free. Individuals interested in attending are kindly requested to register beforehand by sending an email to or by telephoning 029 2087 6049.
